  • Description

    AS PART OF A NATION-WIDE MOVEMENT, THE TRADESMEN AND CRAFTSMEN OF NICE, IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE, TODAY (MONDAY) CLOSED THEIR SHOPS AND BUSINESSES AND MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS PROTESTING AGAINST HIGH TAXATION, THE RISE IN LICENSING FEES AND ABUSIVE CONTROLS -- ALL OF WHICH WERE LEADING TO A HIGHER COST OF LIVING.

    OTHER SIMILAR DEMONSTRATORS WERE HELD IN VARIOUS CITIES -- BUT MAINLY IN NICE, PARIS AND LILLE -- AND ARE SEEN AS PART OF THE GENERAL UNREST THAT HAS BEEN GRIPPING FRANCE SINCE DEVALUATION AND WHICH HAS ERUPTED IN STRIKES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

    THE NICE TRADESMEN ALSO DECIDED TO SUSPEND ALL HEALTH INSURANCE PAYMENTS TO NON-SALARIED EMPLOYEES UNTIL THEY RECEIVED FORMAL NOTICE OF THE "ANNOUNCED IMPROVEMENTS."
    A DELEGATION OF THEIR LEADERS WENT TO THE "PREFECTURE" (POLICE HEADQUARTERS) OF THE ALPES-MARITIMES REGION TO PRESENT THEIR GRIEVANCES IN WRITING TO THE CHIEF OF POLICE, M. THOMS, WHILE THE NEARLY 2,000-STRONG DEMONSTRATION GATHERED IN THE SQUARE OUTSIDE.
